I worked on a couple of projects today. I made some letter blocks for my newest niece Afton.
That was kind of frustrating because I couldn't figure out the vinyl and wasted about 3 feet of it and then I made the "A" too big and had to cut it down by hand. Ah, well. The other thing I did was try to find a way to extend the life of my daughters jeans. She is amazingly brutal on her clothes. I don't really want to go out and buy a bunch of pants to get her through the rest of the school year, but I feel pretty embarrassed sending her to school in these.I decided to turn them into capris. I cut off the jeans just over the gaping hole and I also cut the very bottom cuff off because I don't like to hassle with that kind of stuff, so I just reuse the original ones from the pants if they are in decent enough shape. I used an old scarf, but any piece of material would work. I just sewed the scarf in between the two pieces of pant and you've got instant capris!
